Course Description

This one year full-time programme of training in Post-Compulsory Education and Training (PCET) involves a combination of practical teaching for two or three days a week on a placement in a college, together with attendance at the University. The course begins in early September and concludes in early July. You will, on completion of the course, meet the relevant Lifelong Learning UK (LLUK) professional standards in teaching, reflection on practice and in scholarship in Education. The award is approved by LLUK and is nationally recognised as an advanced professional qualification for teaching in the post-16 sector. You will also have a good grasp of the application of your subject, how post-16 education and training is organised, how you might be expected to participate in management, what the current issues are and the way things are going. You will develop a reflective, independently-minded approach to problems and identify your own educational values. Above all, you will discover the pleasure of working together with students towards their own independence as learners. Most trainees particularly value the company and support of their fellow trainee teachers and the course provides lots of opportunities for learning together with enjoyment. For example, there is usually a valuable residential experience early in the course, which everyone is normally expected to attend.
